Crown The Empire
Crown The Empire
Since bursting onto the scene in 2011 with their debut EP, "Limitless", Crown The Empire have shown no signs of slowing down. 2012 brought the band to the forefront with their debut full-length, "The Fallout", and a cocktail of world tours, magazine covers, and die hard fan dedication ensued, pushing ' The Fallout' to sell over 85,000 copies to date. Their sophomore follow up ' The Resistance: Rise of the Runaways' further explored the conceptual world within their previous release, and was greeted with even more enthusiasm, reflected in the 75,000copies sold in half the time of their previous effort.

In 2016, Crown The Empire released their new album ' Retrograde' . This record sees a departure from the conceptual world that defined their past efforts, and instead the band takes you on a voyage into the reality of their lives as a band of twenty-something' s growing up under a spotlight, and the way they see the world around them. Bathed in cinematic production reminiscent of the space epics ' Interstellar' or ' 2001: A Space Odyssey' , combined with blistering guitar riffs comparable to the likes of ' Incubus' or other alt-rockers of a time gone by, Crown The Empire have made their identity known with Retrograde, proving they have the song-writing prowess backed by an understanding and aptitude for cultural identity that has them ready to stand amongst the giants.

There is nothing fake about Retrograde. The 13 song LP blends seamlessly from track to track, allowing fans to truly embrace Crown The Empire as a soundtrack to their lives in an unparalleled way. Nothing is holding Crown back from being one of the biggest bands in rock, and ' Retrograde' marks only the beginning of what will be a cultural impact the world over.
Attila
Attila
Party death metal rockers Attila formed in their hometown of Atlanta in 2005, meeting each other at their high school and through mutual friends. Their mutual love of music (and partying) brought the guys together to form what would eventually become the fourth imprint on the Artery Foundation/Razor & Tie joint venture, Artery Recordings.

When the guys set out to name their newly formed band, they knew they were looking for a simple, one word name that didn't imply the typical death metal cliché terms such as "blood, dying, and darkness." One day they found themselves in a bookstore passing around a book about Attila the Hun, and so Attila was born.

Over the years Attila has gone through a few lineup changes, but founding members Fronz and Sean have remained a constant staple. For the past two years, the band has consisted of Fronz (vocals), Nate (guitar), Chris (guitar), Sean (drums) and Paul (bass). This lineup really brought together Attila's sound and image that they are known for today. The band began touring full time and as of summer 2010, has been on the road almost non-stop for two years.

Attila released two prior albums, Fallacy and Soundtrack To A Party, on Statik Factory Records, and have previously toured with Arsonists Get All The Girls, See You Next Tuesday, Chelsea Grin, America Me, and We Are The End. RAGE, Attila's Artery Recording/Razor & Tie debut will be released May 11, 2010, and is a unique mix of heavy music infused with elements that make each song fun to listen to and put the listener in the mood to party. "The title can be perceived in many ways, one obviously being a state of extreme anger, and the other being the slang meaning – to party! I have always been a fan of play-on-words and double meanings, and that's what drew me to this title more than anything," Fronz commented.

While Attila certainly evokes thoughts of partying, the band is trying to expand the public's immediate thoughts about party metal through RAGE. They describe the album and their overall take on music as a way of letting loose and having fun, and allowing the listener to take away that message in whatever context they find fitting. As Fronz said, "All we want is for the listener to have a fun experience, and that is the main message behind RAGE."
